NEW FOR 2019 - OWNERS PREMIUM - April 2019

Following on from the successful Breeders Premiums, STAGBI are introducing a new Owners Premium in 2019 with the aim of supporting the owners of British bred horses.

The current Breeders Premiums and Bonuses are awarded to horses that win the most races or high profile races, so to ensure that as many people benefit from the STAGBI Awards Premium scheme as possible, it will now also support owners of British bred horses at the grassroots of the industry.

A 100 Owners Premium will be awarded to winners of BHRC Grade 1 Races (straight races only not heats & final) and WBCRA Grade B Finals.
